Any love for Bennett Winch bags (https://www.bennettwinch.com/) here? I just received the leather commuter bag to go with a canvas weekender I already had and love. I use the weekender primarily for trips where I'll be driving vs. flying and wanted a smaller size for plane travel (when I won't be bringing a backpack).

Sounds like it might be best to keep away from Rimowa for checked these days, thanks for the details Ane. Great to know yours are holding up well. Giles, thanks for the comments, bookmarked for future. The B&R has well and truly exceeded my expectations, who knows may go back for another when this one has had enough. The ROI on it's been great!

Has anyone ordered cheap Filson duffle from Ebay? Knockoff, factory second or real deal?

Like this https://www.ebay.com/itm/Filson-Medium-Duffle-Bag-70325-Tan-New/163885926898?epid=16031086283&hash=item26285cc9f2:g:khIAAOSwLKhb-dDE



I see no reason not to trust the seller. They have 100% feedback and accept returns (with a restocking fee). When in doubt, contact the seller and ask questions.

Thanks for the answer. I noticed there is a return possibility, but since I will order it to our hotel when visiting in states I prefer not to have any hassle.

Replying for myself. Ordered one and seems to be legit and not factory second. So beautiful.

Just got this Herz weekender/Boston bag for Christmas from my wife.  Ive wanted this one for a while and I'm not disappointed. Herz seems like a pretty great company. Each bag is made to order and all done by an individual worker. They don't ship outside of Japan so I had to get it shipped to Canada by a shipping company (I use White Rabbit Express) here are a couple photos.

Hi neph93,
     I'm not sure how I found them. I think I was probably working one of my night shifts and just browsing internet on my break.  Searching for "Japanese leather bags" the site was a little tough to navigate but they have a ton of nice stuff.

And reasonably priced for what looks like superlative quality.....

Yes it's great quality in my opinion. I'm no expert but it looks better than any "luxury brand" I see and is a little unique too. I really like the hard latigo leather too. Thanks for checking it out.

3 days of heavy clothing and a dopp kit...

Quite easily carried in a Triple Aught packable, waterproof X-Pac duffle that is quite compact

Perhaps not as fun as my Acronym bags, but it's hard to beat this setup for brief trips that don't involve suits.
Think it, be it.

Nice combo there, esp that X-PAC piece. Looks like a really handy bag to have.

I just got my Bedouin Balian Sling fresh from the UK last night. It was originally a carryology collaboration but that run sold out almost instantaneously.

This bag is not as exclusive and doesnt have the orange drill interior but is otherwise the same specs. Dyneema, tumbled Italian leather, and AustriAlpin buckles. It only holds the essentials but is a really comfortable and slick little bag. I’m really thrilled with it.
